Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 94 Points
Whereas I tasted the most recently-released, 2008 installment of Den Hoed’s pure Cabernet known as Andreas, Rob Newsom (for more about whom see under his Boudreaux Cellars in this report), chose, inexplicably, to only show me two earlier vintages of Den Hoed’s other, multi-cepage cuvee – bottlings that had already been reviewed by Jay Miller in issues 196 and 190, but which inspire me to weigh-in, beginning with the 2007 Marie’s View. As usual, this cuvee consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese, the first two in the present instance each constituting one-third, and the last two fermented together. Cherry preserves, creme de cassis, roasted red meats, tar, and bay laurel are announced in the nose and then dominate an incredibly rich, silken-textured palate whose sweetness avoids superficiality and benefits from the intriguing contrast of set stone and peat-like smoky undertones. Here is one of those surprisingly uncommon yet to my mind predictably successful North American instances of synergy between the great grapes of the Medoc and Northern Rhone. Hints of tar and camphor add to the complexity of a vibrantly tenacious yet at the same time soothing finish. Look for continued excitement over the coming decade. There are 200 cases.
